Stanford d.school teaching teachers!
MC was very excited to host Laura (co-director) and Louie (lecturer) from the Stanford d. school just prior to Term 3 commencing for students. The Stanford d. school is a world leader in design thinking. In the first time lecturers from the d.school have visited Australia, Laura and Louie spent 3 days with us, sharing knowledge and ideas with our MC X and design specialist teachers to further embed their understanding of design thinking.
The Stanford d. school training was a real high point for our staff during the professional development week. Throughout the week, they participated in learning designed to develop and refine their own skills in design thinking, along with working on how they would implement design projects with their young people in the classroom. The teachers are looking forward to putting their learning into practice and Macquarie College is looking forward to continuing its relationship with the Stanford d. school into the future.
